Born 1967 in Innsbruck / Austria; his mother beeing from now ex-Jugoslavia / Petrinja, he spent his first childhood there; studied dance in Innsbruck and Munich, but developped soon his own raving energetic movement speech, that was much influenced by his roots.

With the duett „Intertwining“ they won the audience award in Luxembourg, the developped piece „mazy“ got the „Österreichischer Tanzpreis 2000“.
After a long tour with „mazy“ he danced with the Mia Lawrence Company in Munich.
In 1997 he started with his own company protanz 2.13. After a few short projects in Berlin and Munich he made his first full-length work called „fishing for compliments“ in 1999. Since then he created 23 different pieces.
Additional to the creation of dance he was always interested in cross-over projects and launching various artistical tryouts.

Manfred Kröll is member of „Tanztendenz München e.V.“
From 2008 until 2011 protanz 2.13 was much concerned about the dialogue between artistic statement and reality in global society. His solo-work „ such a perfect day-under attack“ confronts the audience with himself as a human beeing and the different ways to feel reality in times of approaching war.
2009 he produced the series "Wilde Tendenzen" with the first theme "du fehlst". He invited different choreographers and artists to perform their feelings about the loss of a beloved person.
"Wilde Tendenzen" was continued in spring 2011 with the polarizing title: "all about sex".
"Wilde Tendenzen" is an annual show and dedicated to borderlines, social items and taboos.
2013 "Wilde Tendenzen" will go on with "THE FUTURE IS NOW - TALK ABOUT YOUR REVOLUTION“
Latest productions: "from hell to heaven", solo about death, the Sunny-Trilogy: "sunny", "my best friend sunny" and to come: "sunny Deluxe and Yoko" about the live and death of Sunny, Seelenecho - August 2011
In the very moment
he intensifies his interest in yoga and got a scholarship by the city of Munich to travel to Vrindavan, the holy city in Northern India. In this spirit he worked on a solo with the title "Inspired by John Cage & Kant" with a deeply felt spirituality.
